Worthless

If I'm not worth the glitter and gold,
If I'm not worth the fortune and fame,
If I'm not worth being daring or bold,
How will they ever know my name?

If I'm not worth the suffering and the pain,
If I'm not worth the time or work,
If I'm not Worth the Walks in the rain,
How Will I Ever know what I'm worth?

If I'm not worth standing strong,
If I'm not worth the clash or the fall,
If I'm not worth the rights and the wrongs,
How will I Ever know my purpose at all?

If I'm not worth the honesty,
If I'm not worth the struggle or day,
If I'm not worth the rumbling Seas,
How will I ever know my way?

If I'm not worth the fight,
If I'm not even worth the risk,
If I'm worth nothing at all,
Then it was worth it, being worthless.
